Thurrock Island 2020 Community Art Gallery

Hello and welcome to the Thurrock Island Community Art Gallery!

Thurrock Island was a community participation project that began in Summer 2020 and invited the community of Thurrock to create artworks which have been used to create a storybook with the themes of climate change, teamwork, diversity, and community.

The Storybook “Thurrock Island: Bryony and the Plastic Problem” and Art Gallery are being unveiled today, Saturday 19th September 2020, and are featured at Thurrock Festival.

Cece Luna would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in Thurrock Island 2020, and we are excited to share their artworks with you.

And thank you to Thurrock CVS Stronger Together Thurrock Arts, Culture and Heritage Fund, for making this project possible.
